Psychology focuses on the science of the mind, behaviour and experience.

The course covers a range of psychological approaches and studies. Students will look at core questions like:

  • What makes a child become aggressive?
  • What turns someone to commit crime?
  • What is the difference between the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere?
  • What leads an individual to help a stranger?

  • Entry requirements
